Ailbhe Greaney Street Flowers

The movement of women from Vietnam to Paris between 1914 and 1954 is explored in this photographic exhibition Street Flower. Multi-coloured floral jackets worn en masse through the streets of Hanoi and Saigon conjure up the image of a moving garden. Here, aspects of Vietnamese sun, style and subtlety of substance, are re-imagined within a Parisian landscape.
 

Belfast Exposed Futures

Belfast Exposed Photography’s new Futures programme promotes early-career photographic talent from Northern Ireland over the course of a year.
For this special showcase of work in collaboration with the CCI, the six Futures artists exhibit works from their individual projects: Alberto Maserin, Jan McCullough, Jill Quigley, Joanne Mullin, Peter Evers, Ruby Wallis.
 
These exhibitions are organised with the support of Institut Suisse Océan
